Question about Sony STR-DA5ES 6.1 Channels Receiver

2 Answers

Sony receiver DA5ES. Unit start arc and shoot off.

Several months ago my DA5ES start making arching sound 3-5 minutes after turned on, than continued to play  with no problems. Recently there is not arching but after 3-5 minutes unit display's flashing "please power off". So fare unit works only on stereo setting. We were using only 3 speakers and powered sub. Movies were watched on sony cinema sound setting, Cd played on ADF decoding and radio on sony cinema sound, opera or ADF decoding. Unit is 7 years old and it was listen on 1/4 volume cca  -65 db

Is unit defective and is it worth fixing it. 
Thank you for looking in this matter
Sincerely, 
Marko Gosar

Have the same issue with mine, deciding if it's worth it to fix. I tried canned air to blown out internals, worked for about a week then same poping noise and message. I think it's something to do with the detection for 6.1 and then tries to overdrive speakers and pop!

Marko,

I own the same unit (since 2001) & have had no problems. I would get it looked at & see what the issue is & what it would cost to fix. Would it be worthwhile? Well you'd have to ask yourself how much $$ you'd be willing to spend on a replacement vs repairing this unit & based on how much you'd be willing to spend, would the specs on a replacement unit measure up. You'd have to ignore things like HDMI inputs to keep it apples to apples.

I've owned various Sony components for a long time. I only had to get one unit fixed one time (a CD player that my one year old decided to do a chin-up on :( ). The unit was 7 years old at the time and my son is now 12!!. the unit still functions flawlessly since being repaired. Sony builds their stuff to last, even after beiung abused.

I went through the amp/receiver and used small star washers on all the grounding screws I could find including the one securing the transformer, cleaned dust off all circuit boards, checked output transistors and fuses, all OK.

Re Assembled unit and it worked OK.

I will buy a fan and fan it to avoid sourcing heatsinks for the previusly suggested IC's.

Thanks for the technical help, sure solved my problem.

Regards

Darryl.

SOURCE: Sony's STR-DE675 5.1 Channel Receiver - Speaker OFF problem

There's a button that turns the speakers OFF right above the headphone jack.

Testimonial: "@dunnbiker Very true on assumptions! I've tried everything the manual suggests. Right now, nothing is connected to the unit, but upon power up, I get the SP:OFF display (which is not seen in the DEMO mode). I will try the headphone jiggling idea and see what happens."

Hi I purchased a sony av amplifier model STR-DB930 on e-bay a few months ago and I am using 3 ohm speakers from my old surround sound system. The output selector on the back of the unit is set to 4 ohms....


The lower number in Impedance specs is not a suggestion. It's a limit. 3 is not between 4 and 8.

If you don't want to buy new speakers, settle for safer low volume levels.

You're going to kill that receiver driving a 3-ohm load. HTS-style speakers aren't reliably re-deployable to other electronics. Perhaps, if you have 4 speakers and they're similar you could wire them in SERIES and present a 6-ohm load to each channel.

Re-engineering the speakers themselves is, well, don't do it. It isn't rocket science but it also isn

Recently cleaned unit. now i am getting arcing on


The arcing sound comes from a loose fit. You may have to bend the contact bar so it fits tightly against the unit.

sounds like bad CRT, some of these sonys have had defective CRT issues, usually all will come and go sooner or later (all 3 bad), you can pull the speaker grill off(either 2 1/4" screws on bottom or 6 1/4" on back sides) and pull off the Crt box cover (2'X3' piece) and lightly tap the CRT's with tv on, if they flare or get colored streaks in pix they are bad, CALL SONY 800 # and complain, also could adjust G2 (Screen control for color) for short patch. Will need new crts.

No sound or picture now


The set may have shorted the horizontal out put transistor since it kept coming on sometimes. This could be cause by the driver transformer arcing causing a "spike" in voltage going to you horizoltal out put transistor. Stargazer
